Matthew Mark Luke John
A relaxed camp circle no prep game
How To Play Matthew Mark Luke John
Each person has a chair. Put 4 chairs in a row (or use a couple couches), the rest in a circle - works well with a range of players. The four on the sofa, or in a row, name off as Matthew Mark Luke and John, carrying on, all others number off, 1, 2, 3, 4 etc. The last person is sitting on the other side to Matthew. Make sure everyone knows their name or number.
The basic action for each person in the game is:
slap their knees then
claps their hands together,
then click right hand fingers,
then click left hand fingers,
SLAP,CLAP, RIGHT, LEFT and get a rhythm going.
Do this now when you are reading this !!!
Matthew always starts and says "ready" and all start SLAP CLAP RIGHT LEFT 2 or 3 times until all are in rhythm.
Matthew says when slapping "Mathew"
Matthew says when clapping "to"
Matthew says when right click "7" (or any number)
Player 7 only has the left click to react.
Player 7 then says when slapping "7"
Player 7 says when clapping "to"
Player 7 says when right click "Luke" or any number or name
If you don't react fast enough you are out. Stop the actions
All with a higher number than you stand up and move up one seat and you go to the end (next to Matthew)
The number stays with the seat not the player. Name and number off again with new seat numbers. Matthew starts again. The aim is to end up on the sofa.
A lot easier to play than describe
A great time when you are filling an unknown period of time as you can just call LAST Round when it suits you.
